Vintage trailer hunt!

I NEEEEEEEEED one of these little cuties…

I’m on the hunt for an old, beat up, vintage trailer that I can fix up and turn into a cute play house for my little ladies! Would that not be the funnest thing EVER! I’ve always wanted a really cool play house for my girls to have in the back yard but the size I want always runs WAY to pricy! I started looking on online classifieds for an old camper that I can work some DIY magic on. I’m just waiting for the right one to show up so I can snag it up, park it in my back yard and get to work!

If you know of any small trailer for sale that has potential in the Salt Lake City area PLEASE let me know! I need one without a bathroom and needs more work on the inside then the outside. I can reupholster but my patching a fiberglass roof skills seem a bit out of my skill set! The cheaper the better!

    Ooh fun! I’m afraid I can’t help you out, but my husband LOVES his trailer-office in our backyard!

    I’ve been wanting one of these since I saw one in blogland a few years ago. I’ve been told by a co-worker they are available if you search the web or craig’s list.
    It surely would be a fun project to have! Happy new year :)

    I actually saw one of these last April on our trip to Florida at a rest stop. I had never seen one before and I commented to my husband how cute it was. There was an elderly couple pulling it and I mentioned how perfect it would be for us after the kids were grown.

    I think this would make an absolutely adorable playhouse for little girls…good luck on finding one. You might try searching ebay or craigs list.

    I had an obsession for a while and rode all over our county in rural areas. Actually saw a few and stopped and knocked on doors. Try that…keep your eyes open in back yards and driveways. You’ll be surprised. Put it on Facebook too! I had an obsession with the website someone mentioned above too. I realized how much work needs to go into one so I went a different route. Be careful because leaking from roof and mold seem to be a big problem. Good luck though. SHARE with us if you find one!

    I’ve always wanted a small, vintage camper! I remember staying in one at “the rivah” as a child in early ’60′s….loved it. I want one to sit in my backyard to use as my art studio! I would have flowers planted all around it, pink flamingos, an old vintage coaster (beach cruiser) propped up against it…a cute little walkway leading up to it…and don’t even get me started on the Inside! Love these things!
